I recently stayed at the Blue Parrot and really had a fantastic time! Friendly atmosphere easy to meet people, the hostel was in a great location and really clean. The price was the same as any other good hostel in Sydney and it was great value for money especially since they had free internet which other hostels charge for. I highly recommended it!

I had the most fantastic time at Blue Parrot. Was there for 10 days and wish that I could have stayed longer. Met awesome people and had the time of my life! It's a small and intimate place and perfect if you are travelling solo!
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Best stay in Australia so far - will definitely recommend it!
I'll be back for sure!!!!

Really nice place and great location. I stayed here for 3 nights and loved it, except for two douchey Swiss room mates. The receptionists are friendly and the rates for 4 bed rooms are very reasonable. It is a short walk from the Blue Parrots to the Royal Botanical Garden and only a 1/2 mile from Central Station. I would highly recommend staying here.
